Sorry - I can`t follow here exactly. Could you perhaps 
describe in more detail what you did (especially with the 
ramdisk) ? Did you use that as SharedStorage?

If SharedStorage with VMWare (which icsci or special types 
of NFS are) is an issue (it was till Version 4.x) - there 
is a recent thread on VMWare mailinglist about SharedStorage 
with VMWare Workstation (using a virtual SCSI HDD from within 
two nodes at the same time). Now it seems to works again (via
undocumented param diskLib.dataCacheMaxSize = "0").

Unfortunately it`s the Vmware 5 beta board and it`s currently 
closed to the public - you need an account:
